Competent new hire and refresher training for your employees is necessary for the proper operation of any company. The benefit of the "incident" that never happens is just as real and tangible as production. Too many companies do not prepare their employees to face the hazards of the workplace.
Your employees are your most important asset. Without properly trained and competent employees your company will not prosper in today's environments. Safety training is a very important component of any great program, both to protect the employee and to protect your company production.
When a prospective customer looks at your company, what do they see? A good production and delivery record should not be overshadowed by a poor safety record, with a high incident rate.
